It is said to be for the first time in Kerala, and perhaps in India, that the organs of one person are being donated to eight others.
Kelvin Joy, 39, hailing from North Pravoor in Eranakulam district, met with a road accident recently and suffered brain hemorrhage. He was under treatment at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Kochi where he was declared brain dead on Saturday.
Kelvin’s both hands were donated to one patient in AIMS. His heart, small intestine, liver and corneas were donated to five patients in AIMS, while his kidneys were donated to two patients at Lourdes Hosptial in Kochi and Kozhikode government medical college hospital.
